Do you have droopy eyelids and want to correct it scarless?

Ptosis surgery is a surgical procedure to correct droopy eyelid, by either tightening the muscle that lifts the eyelid or by removing certain tissue from the inside to lift the upper eyelids.

Our technique consists of correcting the droopy eyelid from the inside of the eyelid, making no incision and scar in the skin and without putting any sutures, which makes it a very attractive option.

If you are considering ptosis surgery to recuperate the normal position of your eyelid, Turó Park Clinics is fortunate to have a specialist in this innovative technique, Dr. van der Veen has introduced this sutureless version of droopy eyelid correction both in the Netherlands and in Spain with many satisfied patients as a result.

What are the differences between sutured and non-sutured procedures in eyelid surgery?

This technique already exists for many years with suture placement, making it a trustworthy procedure. The advantage of using a suture is that the effect is immediate, but there are some downsides to it as well; some people experience uncomfort or even damage to their cornea because of the suture rubbing over it when blinking.

To prevent this problem, a contactlens is normally placed on the eye after the surgery to protect it, but this lens also has to be removed and antibiotic eyedrops have to be used during the period of contactlens wear to prevent eye infections. Also, the suture is visible on the outside of the eyelid during one week.

Therefore we implemented this sutureless technique with many happy patients as a result. We have reached a good and equal effect with the sutureless technique, without placing the suture, without the need of placing a contact lens and without any problems with the cornea.

What does droopy eyelid correction treatment usually consist of?


Step 1: The preliminary consultation

Before the procedures, a visit must be made with the oculoplastic surgeon to determine whether you are a candidate for this sutureless procedure, performing an examination of the ocular area and eyelids.


Step 2: The surgery

The procedure takes only about 15-20 minutes and is completely ambulatory. It is usually performed under local anesthesia with sedation, but can be perfectly performed under local anesthesia alone.

This technique is carried out without any external incision nor scar, as it is carried out with a hidden incision on the inside of the eyelid.


Step 3: The postoperative

The patient can go home after the surgery. This technique has made procedure faster and the recovery easier, without placing sutures, without the need of placing a contact lens and without any problems with the cornea.

Making it a truly minimally invasive procedure with maximum result.
